Will Poco’s first 5G phone become the most popular one in India? It will arrive next week

Won’t have to wait long if you’ve been craving a Poco-branded 5G phone for India. According to reports,Poco will launch the M3 Pro 5G in India on June 8 through Flipkart. It’s the Xiaomi-owned brand’s first 5G phone for the country.

POCO M3 Pro is largely a rebranded Redmi Note 10 5G, but that’s not a bad thing if you live in India and crave faster wireless. Poco’s new phone offers a 6.5-inch 1080p display with a 90Hz refresh rate as well as a fast-for-the-money Dimensity 700 chip and a large 5,000mAh battery. You’ll also get at least 4GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, although the camera setup is unspectacular between the 48MP main sensor, 2MP macro camera, 2MP depth sensor, and front 8MP shooter.


Poco has not said the price for the M3 Pro 5G ahead of the India launch. Europeans pay €180 for the base model, though, which translates to roughly Rs 16,000. While that wouldn’t make it the most affordable phone in the country, it could be a good deal for a 5G device with respectable performance.

Please remember that the M3 Pro 5G isn’t your only choice in India. The Redmi Note 10 5G is effectively the same phone, so it’s worth considering if it arrives at a lower price.
